expiredAPC Surge/Arrest 11 AC outlet, phone and coax protector w/8 ft. cable: $16 shipped

Amazon offers the APC P11VT3 3020 Joules Performance SurgeArrest 11 Outlet with Phone Splitter and Coax Protection, 120V for $15.21 Prime shipped. That’s $24 off the list and about $5 less than we typically see this 4.6/5 star rated protector. APC is the best name in surge protection and this is one of their flagship models capable of not only 11 spaced out AC jacks but also protecting your phone and cable connection for lightning strikes or the multitude of other types of electric surges that can damage your home electronics. It has a very long 8 foot cable meaning you can bring your electricity a long way from the nearest outlet and clutter free. APC will also insure you for $100,000 against damages to your equipment.

This is the one piece of gear that can handle all of your home cable/data/comms equipment.

If you want to take it to the next level and give your modem and wireless network outage protection, $29.99 gets you a battery that will take you all the way through most under an hour outages.
